Best CPU mobo to buy for gtx 560?

I'm looking to upgrade my old AS Rock G41M-VS3 and Intel E5400 to a new pair. I use my pc mostly for gaming, I have a 550w Aywun PSU which should be able to handle any upgrade I get.
Thank you in advance for the help!

    Budget is around $300 AU

    Motherboard: ASRock Z68 PRO3 GEN3 - $105

    Total: $295
    295 U.S. dollars = 287.58 Australian dollars
  4. Your PSU is no good for GTX560. Aywun 550W is NOT a recognized brand.

    Just had a look on ebay, the i5-2400 seems to be about $180 but the ASRock Z68 is almost $200, is it just me or are motherboards a lot more expensive in Australia?
    I will still most likely get this combo, thank you very much for the help! :D

    It is Robbery. The board is way too much overpriced in ebay from what you are saying!

    What do you mean not a recognized brand? It's been running fine for about half a year now... D:
